Oops. Yeah, I may have forgotten to tell you that in the beginning of this story, but yes, I am a student. I am currently doing an online masters degree program, which is supposed to take three years. I started at the end of May of this year, and the summer sessions were really great. This fall semester though? Painful. But here's the reason why and also the reason why I have been missing for the last two weeks.
I am doing this three year masters program in one year and one semester. Yeah, I know. Crazy. But I decided to do that because I wanted it done as soon as possible, and I knew that I had it in me to overload my semesters by taking as many courses as possible and just be done way sooner. But, this past semester, that killed me. Not because the classes were hard, because they weren't. But, because I was in newly-engaged bliss and wanted only to do things related to the wedding. Which means that everything school related was pushed off. And pushed off some more, because the only due dates were the last day of the semester.
Yeah, I'm that girl who put of an entire semester's worth of school work for the last two weeks of the semester. But, I got it done, and that's over and done with, and believe me when I say that will NOT happen again.
Today was the last day of the semester, and I just submitted my last assignment. I think my hands have typed more in the last two weeks than they ever have. I should really tally up how many pages of text I typed up this "semester."
Anyone else out there a student and finding it difficult to balance wedding planning and homework?
